The U.S. women’s team and Japan will play at 8 p.m. CT on June 2 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo. It’s their first meeting since the 2015 World Cup final. The game will be on Fox Sports 1.

U.S. Soccer said the game will be “the first of two June matches,” but it gave no information about the second; it’s not clear from the federation’s announcement whether Japan will be the opponent for both games.

Japan is ranked No. 7 in the world. It fell from No. 4 after its stunning failure to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
